20 Really Good Questions To Ask Your Boyfriend

Your relationship with your boyfriend may have reached the point where you both feel comfortable with each other. These questions you can ask—not all at once of course—to enliven things and have some fun.

OUR FAVORITE QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR BOYFRIEND

How many serious relationships have you been in? This is a good one to ask at the beginning of the relationship. It will give you a sense of his emotional security.

Have you ever had your heart broken? This is another good one. Although few of them will admit, heart break has a very deep and lasting impact on a man.

What do you want out of life? A general question to be sure. However, you may be surprised at how he answers it.

Where do you see your career going? You will get a glimpse at how happy he is in his current job—whether he takes it seriously and intends to stick with it and seek promotion.

Do you like the way I dress? We tend to be really self-conscious—especially about the way we dress. He may be reticent to tell you what he really thinks. Ask him flat out. And prepare yourself for an honest answer.

Are you ever attracted to other women? There is little doubt that he is, but you shouldn’t feel threatened. He will probably try to avoid answering. Coax him a little.

Do you think I’ve gained weight since we met? We shouldn’t get too comfortable girls!

What do you think about us living together? The question is better asked after you’ve been together for a while.

Do you like my friends? You don’t have to like everything about each other’s friends. But if you want to keep both him and them in your life you should get a sense of who he doesn’t like and why.

Have you ever been jealous over me? It’s nice to feel that your man has been jealous over you—admit it.

What would you think if I went back to school? Some guys have a real problem with women who are more educated than they are. If you’re thinking of going to grad school, you should determine whether he is one of them.

Do you find me attractive in the morning? Another question that he is unlikely to be straightforward about. But you should try to get him to do so. We are completely unmasked in the morning and are therefore likely to be at our most unpleasant. You will be able to gauge from his face how unpleasant when he responds to the question.

Would you like to meet my parents? If you live far from your parents, you will need to arrange a special trip just to get this done. If he says yes, it can shift the relationship into a completely new level.

When will I meet your parents? Don’t panic if he’s evasive. He may have issues with his folks that he would prefer to work out before he introduces you to them. Again, it is a big deal if you have to make a special trip to meet them.

Would you like to have children some day? This is another question that is best asked after you’ve been in the relationship for a while. It can be a delicate matter, so you don’t want to be pushy.

If you could change one thing about me, what would it be? He may give you the predictable answer of nothing. Or, he may be honest and tell you the truth. You will never know unless you ask.

What would you say to my changing careers? If you’re seriously thinking about doing so, it will affect his life as much as yours.

What do you think of spending Christmas together? Christmas is a time for family. If you’re thinking of spending it together, you will either have to go together to your family’s place or his or you make it a Christmas of just the two of you together.

Do you mind that I have male friends? This can be a real problem for some guys. You want to get as straight an answer as you can about it.

If we got married, would you ever consider becoming a stay-at-home dad? If you have the kind of career that keeps you busy and in the office a lot, then you really should consider this as an option. It is the kind of question you want to ask your boyfriend when you think he’s ready to speak seriously about marriage and the future.

As you can see, these questions can give you real insight into your partner’s mind. They can be a great way to put a bit of a spark into the evening.

20 Really Good Never Have I Ever Questions

20 Really Good Never Have I Ever Questions

Here are 20 good never have I ever questions that can bring life to just about any party.  Maybe you’re just having some friends over for some drinks and a laugh. Asking these questions is sure to get things going.

OUR 20 FAVORITE NEVER HAVE I EVER QUESTIONS

Have you ever gone skinny dipping? It’s worth a try. It may be a bit cold at first, but your body will soon adjust.

Have you ever swum naked in a friend’s pool? If done as prank, you should keep it close hold. If done with your friend, it should come at the end of festive night.

Have you ever fallen for a girl at first sight? There is such a thing as love at first sight. If you have never experienced it, watch out. It can happen to any of us at any time.

Have you ever cheated on an exam? The temptation is great, especially if you’re unprepared. Doing it may seem so simple and easy that you will think it’s not so bad—at the time.

Have you ever been on an airplane? You’re not alone. You would be stunned at how many people have yet to take their first flight. Just don’t put it off for too long. It becomes harder to do as you get older.

Have you ever eaten food you dropped on the floor? The old five second rule can be applied here. But who says you should even be limited by this arbitrary time frame. If you keep your floors clean and its only you living in the house, it may not be so gross to pick up and eat.

Have you ever rummaged through the trash to find something you accidentally threw away? You may have been in a hurry when you were throwing things away. There is no shame in digging through the trash to recover that important document or piece of clothing.

Have you ever read a book of more than a thousand pages? Some long books are worth the read. They are so interesting and intriguing that you can get lost in the world of the author. War and Peace, Ulysses anyone?

Have you ever accidentally walked in on someone in a bathroom? It can be quite embarrassing for both you and the other person. That is why you should always open the door to a public toilet slowly.

Have you ever walked around all day with mismatched socks? Socks that are close in shade of color make this ever-present concern. Dark browns are especially troublesome.

Have you ever walked around all day with your t-shirt on backwards? You should try it for a day and see if anyone takes notice.

Have you ever had all of your credit cards rejected? If you haven’t I don’t recommend it. The experience is deeply humiliating.

Have you ever been out on a date and realized you left your wallet at home? Another experience to be avoided. Taking out the girl of your dreams to a nice restaurant and then realizing that you can’t pay for the meal will crush all hopes of a second date—unless she’s a really understanding person. Which she may be; that’s one of the reasons you like her, right?

Have you ever seen a solar eclipse? They don’t happen that often. If you hear that one is to occur, you should take time out to observe it. It’s one of those things everyone should do at least once.

Have you ever walked out of a movie theater half way through a film? You should never feel wedded to watching a film. Yes, you paid a lot of money for it. But a bad movie is a bad movie. You shouldn’t waste your time with it.

Have you ever been pulled over for speeding? You’ve been lucky. Don’t push it though.

Have you ever been slapped in the face for making a rude remark? Mind your manners and you can avoid this happening to you.

Have you ever witnessed a car accident as it happened? It is an incredible sight. Sometimes very tragic. Things occur much faster than they do in the movies.

Have you ever been to a major sporting event? Again, it would surprise you to learn how many people have not actually done this. It is quite an experience being part of a large crowd at a football, basketball, or baseball game.

Have you ever used the company phone to make a long distance phone call? If you haven’t, then you are a really good employee. This is one of the most common forms of employee abuse. The people who do it tend not to view it that way at all. Never have I questions will help you to get to know your friends. You may also discover things about yourself—especially the things you have yet to experience.

10 Really Sweet And Cute Things To Say To Your Boyfriend

Let’s face it: nobody’s perfect. Even the world’s greatest girlfriend needs tips on making her boyfriend happy every now and again. This is because daily life can have a dampening effect on passion and romance. A lack of passion can be the end of even the strongest relationships, so it is important to find ways to keep affection alive. One way to do this is with constant communication.

Here are 10 really sweet and cute things to say to you boyfriend in order to keep the communication open and the passion burning bright in your relationship.

10 SWEET AND CUTE THINGS TO SAY TO YOUR BOYFRIEND

1. I need you. It is human nature to want to feel useful. This is because we like having purpose and a place in the lives of those we care for. Your boyfriend feels the same way. Letting him know that having him in your life is considered a necessity can make a man feel incredibly special. Keep in mind that this is not needy. Neediness is considered a negative personality trait because it is an over-dependence on other people or things. Often people confuse need for neediness and neglect to tell those they care about that they are truly needed.

2. You’re a good man. You should be a big fan of your man’s physical appearance, but be sure to let him know that his character is desirable too. Men are not often credited for their outstanding character. If he is dependable or honest, be sure to tell him how much you respect and admire these traits within him. This kind of sweet positive reinforcement will only strengthen your bond as a couple, not to mention it will ensure that he continues to treat you to his best qualities.

3. I love when you do this. Praise is always sweet and cute when it is truly genuine. If your boyfriend makes a fantastic omelet, gives amazing shoulder rubs, or makes your heart melt because he always grabs your hand whenever he gets excited, tell him just how much you like the things he does.

4. Let’s go exploring! Awaken your boyfriend’s sense of adventure by suggesting an impromptu exploration of your neighborhood. Spending quality time will always add value to your relationship, but by asking him to go on an adventure you are telling your boyfriend that you think of the two of you as a team. He will find this incredibly sweet.

5. Can you please help me? Asking for your boyfriend’s help and utilizing his skills is going to make your boyfriend feel very special. Many women may object to the idea of not being self-sufficient and doing everything themselves, but your boyfriend will know that you trust his judgement and appreciate his help.

6. I am lucky to have you. The sweetest thing you can do for your boyfriend is to let him know just how you feel to have him in your life. Good relationships are rare. Make sure your man knows that you don’t take yours for granted.

7. I got us tickets! Getting you and your man tickets to his favorite sporting event, tour of his preferred brewery, or to watch a favorite band play is more than just a gift. It tells him you listen to him. You know him and his likes. Tickets for things he loves are considerate cute as well.

8. This makes me think of you. When you care about someone, every minor smell, sight, and experience can remind you of them. When the smell of your coworkers coffee reminds you of your first date with your now boyfriend at the local coffee shop, tell him about it! This is yet another way to let him know that his presence is appreciated and never taken for granted.

9. Your intelligence is sexy. Your boyfriend is probably handsome, but is he smart too? If he is, let him know how his intelligence turns you on. Many men don’t realize that physical attraction is intellectual for women as often as it is physical. It will make him feel special when you tell him you are hot for his brains as well as his brawn.

10. I love this about you. It may seem like this doesn’t need to be said, but even the most affectionate people forget to tell their partners just what it so special about them. Taking the time to tell your boyfriend just which traits he possesses that you love can do more than make him feel special. It can open the lines of communication and allow him to open up to you the same way.

10 Really Sweet and Cute Things To Say To Your Girlfriend

Sometimes the best couples need no words to communicate. That strong bond that allows two people to connect non verbally is incredibly rare and wonderful. That being said, sometimes your girlfriend needs to hear something sweet and cute after a long day.

It may seem as if you need to be a poet laureate to craft the right words to melt your lady’s heart, but it isn’t as difficult as it may seem. There is a trick to saying cute and sweet things that are from the heart. Here are ten really cute and sweet things to say to your girlfriend and why they are so effective.

10 CUTE AND SWEET THINGS TO SAY TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND

  1. How was your day?

The trick to saying this to your girlfriend is not so much in how you say it but how you listen to her answer. Women have been unfairly stereotyped to talking endlessly about the meaningless little events of their day, but sharing her life with you may be one of the ways your girlfriend shows how much she cares. If you are able to truly listen and react when you ask about her day, it can be one of the sweetest gestures you can extend to your girlfriend.

  1. I like sharing this with you.

Shared activities should be a given in any relationship. Women tend to really value quality time spent with you. When you openly acknowledge that your weekly karaoke night with your girlfriend is something you like and look forward to it makes that time even more special to her. Also by telling her which activities you do together that you really like, she can get a better idea of new things that you may enjoy. This open communication can only benefit your relationship.

  1. You are so good at this!

Everyone loves a good compliment! Instead of telling your girlfriend how sexy she looks in the outfit she wore to go bowling, instead praise her for that strike she just pulled in. Women like to be acknowledged for their capabilities; unfortunately many men never got the memo. You should still feel empowered to compliment your girlfriend’s appearance; just know that her mad skills are just as compliment-worthy as her killer smile.

  1. This is special.

Doing tasks for other people is a very common gesture of affection in women. If your girlfriend is the kind of person who likes to cook for you, or bring you small gifts and other thoughtful things, it is very important to let her know just how appreciated her efforts are. Thank you isn’t going to cut it; instead illustrate to her just how useful or helpful this particular effort was. If you woke up to find your favorite latte on your bedside table next to a sweet note from your girl, be sure to let her know just how great it was to save the five minutes before work you would have taken to make it yourself.

  1. I want this for you.

Sometimes daily life can be difficult. It is hard to always be a well-adjusted carefree individual when work, family, and other obligations demand our constant attention. If you want your girlfriend to be able to enjoy a night off with no work emails, or a vacation, tell her so. This shouldn’t be a criticism; instead, communicate to her just how much you want the very best for her. Your desire for her happiness will be very much appreciated and possibly make the burden of her responsibilities that much more bearable.

  1. You are beautiful.

Beauty is more than skin deep. While it is important to feel physical attraction to your partner, only focusing on the physical attributes of your girlfriend can leave her feeling like there is less of a connection on your end. It is equally as important to tell your girlfriend how giving she is, how lovely her laugh sounds to you, or how caring you find her. Knowing that you are with her for more than her looks is one of the sweetest gifts you can give to her.

  1. You are so smart!

Along the same lines of beautiful, telling your girlfriend how smart and capable she is can be a very sweet gesture.

  1. I want to hold your hand.

Physical intimacy doesn’t have to be reserved for the bedroom. Show your girlfriend how sweet you can be by asking if you can hold her hand. This is the perfect amount of P.D.A. The physical closeness without overt sexual vibes can be very romantic.

  1. You are my best friend.

Having a girlfriend that you tell everything to is a special bond in itself. It is often said by relationship experts that the best marriages come from friendships. If your girlfriend is your confidant and best friend, be sure to remind her of that constantly.

  1. Thank you for loving me.

There is nothing sweeter or cuter to say to your girlfriend than to express the gratitude you have for her.

How To Get Your Ex Back Fast (In 5 Quick Steps)

A tumultuous relationship is often the mark of two incredibly passionate people coming together. Breaking up and getting back together does not make a relationship week, it only means that two people need to separate and sort their emotions out before getting back together in order to make their relationship work.

There may be times that you are ready to mend your fences but you don’t know how to get your ex back to the negotiating table. You wish to fight for the relationship, but do not know where to start. It is important to realize that the longer you wait to try and earn your ex’s trust again, the harder it will be for the relationship to be fixed.Here are 5 quick steps that you can take to get your ex back as quickly as possible so that you can work on creating a better and stronger relationship.

HOW TO GET YOUR EX BACK IN 5 STEPS

Validate their feelings. Whether or not you agree with everything that they have said over the course of your break up, it is important to realize that their feelings are valid and acknowledge them. Many failed relationships have happened as a result of one or both partners feeling like their opinions are not valued or their feelings are not considered real. Avoid common defense mechanisms that resort to belittling your partner’s feelings, like calling them crazy or implying that they are not smart.

A relationship can not be mended using negative tactics. Instead of tearing their feelings down, Focus on letting them know that they have the right to feel the way they feel. Even if your intentions were not to deliberately hurt them, owning the things you’ve done that hurt them will help  them understand that you really care. This can open up lines of communication because it will allow your ex to drop their defenses.

Share your feelings. It is important to let your ex know that you want to get back together. This may seem counter intuitive as it may weaken your position, but any deception will not get you to a loving relationship as quickly as direct honesty will. This can also save you time and heartbreak in the long run if your partner has no desire to ever mend the relationship. There is no point trying to force someone back into a relationship that they have walked away from. By being direct and upfront from the start, you can both acknowledge what you want and work towards it from there.

Focus on the good. If you truly want to get back with your ex, try to let the past be in the past. Rehashing old arguments will not be productive in creating new and stronger relationships. Instead, focus on the things that you love about this person.  Why did your relationship work in the first place? It’s important to hold on to these reasons while you’re trying to discuss the possibility of getting back together with your ex. All too often we get so bogged down in the hurt and the negative feelings that we forget what is good about a relationship and what is truly worth fighting for.

Remind your significant other of how much you love them and how good you are together. Show them with little gestures  that you don’t plan on taking them for granted any longer.  Think back to your initial courtship and try to recreate the actions that worked so well in drawing them to you initially.

Listen. Getting back together with your ex means that you need to truly listen to what they want. If you rekindle a relationship without actually doing what your ex needs and wants, you will end up alone again faster than you can blink. Once you have made the decision to rekindle that flame,  take the time to listen to their needs so that you can meet them.  For example, if your significant other was frustrated with your lack of affection, do what you can to give them the affection they craved. Hopefully your ex will see your efforts and do their best to listen to your needs as well.

Come up with a Game Plan. Moving forward, what can you and your significant other do better to prevent another breakup? To create a relationship that lasts, focus on coming up with an agreement with your ex so that you can know what to do the next time there is conflict in your relationship. This way you never have to worry about breaking up and getting back together again.  Please know that if your relationship is abusive or violent that these steps will be ineffective.  The best course of action in this case is to part ways safely and permanently. Love can be painful, but physical pain is not love.

43 Really Good Would You Rather Questions

When you want to get to know someone, whether it’s a prospective romantic interest, a friend, or a co-worker, these “Would you rather…” questions are a great way to learn more about the people around you. They’re fun, and though some of them may be a little gross or embarrassing, they can keep the mood lighthearted.

OUR 43 FAVORITE WOULD YOU RATHER QUESTIONS

Would you rather be really short or really tall? There are pros and cons to both, of course, so think carefully about what you’d say. Chances are, short people will say they’d rather be tall, and tall people will say they’d rather be short, because they already know what it’s like to be the other.

Would you rather be blind or deaf? Always a tough one, but each comes with its merits, if you had to choose.

Would you rather experience a constant pain or constant itch? This is another tough one, for sure. Remember, nothing can make the pain or the itch go away forever.

Would you rather go without your car or the Internet for a month? How a person answers this one can give you a great deal of insight into their personality. But, the Internet be used to get things you need if you don’t have a car. Hmmm…

Would you rather have no sense of smell, or have a sense so strong you could smell everything around you like it was in front of your face? An interesting thing to consider with this one is that your sense of smell, or lack thereof, also affects your sense of taste.

Would you rather be able to whisper or shout everything? This is a tough one. Either way, you’re bound to be in a situation where you’d be forced to shout something you’d rather whisper, and whisper something you’d rather shout.

Would you rather be stuck in a house with someone you can’t stand, or be stuck alone? This is another one to get insight into the people around you, depending on the answer.

Would you rather be a moron in a world full of geniuses or a genius in a world full of morons? Again, a great one for getting insight into the people around you. Some may feel they’re already a genius in a world full of morons…. or they’re a moron surrounded by geniuses.

Would you rather take a cold shower to be clean or skip the shower all together? This one’s kind of gross, but most people would probably take a shower, eventually… depending on how long the hot water was gone.

If you could travel in time, would you rather go to the future or to the past? There are merits to both, so this is a great one to help you learn more about how a person thinks.

Would you rather give or receive bad advice? How a person answers this one will let you know a lot about their personality.

Would you rather drink spoiled milk or pee your pants in public? Both options are less than ideal… but in either case, the embarrassment/pain is only temporary.

Would you rather have a guaranteed $100,000 or a 50/50 shot at $1 million? This one will help you see more about how a person feels about money and taking risks.

Would you rather be poor and good looking, or rich and ugly? This one will help you see more about a person’s issues with money and superficiality.

Would you rather be able to read minds or fly? This one is kind of tough, but would be fun regardless of the answer.

In a crowded room, would you rather be the only one laughing at a fart, or have everyone laughing at your fart? A lighthearted and funny question, this one would have good reasoning on both sides of the argument.

Would you rather have a boring job that pays $100,000 a year, or a fun job you love that pays $50,000?This is another good one for learning more about the importance someone places on money.

Crazy Bucket List Ideas: Top 100 Things To Do Before You Die

Ah, the bucket list: the running list of awesome, amazing, crazy, inspiring ideas you’d like to do before you “kick the bucket.” Maybe you have one, maybe you don’t. Whether your bucket list is on paper, on Pinterest, or just potential, here are 100 crazy bucket list ideas for you to consider.


1. Slide the Wild Wadi Waterslide in Dubai. One visit to the this theme park gives you access to 30 rides – including the 100 ft. high slide. Take your family with you too, to make memories that will last a lifetime.

2. Drive a sports car over 100mph. Many find the experience exhilarating. For safety, rent the car on a closed course, and follow all rules and regulations. It’s especially fun if you are notoriously a lead foot.

 

3. Ride the Glacier Express in Switzerland. The most famous railway in the world will take you through beautiful landscapes, across 291 bridges, and 91 tunnels, if you ride from start to finish.

4. Take the Edge Walk on the CN Tower in Canada. Face your fear of heights and see amazing views as you walk on the world’s tallest hands-free circle walk. The tallest building in Toronto lets you walk the circumference of the roof.

5. Dye your hair a crazy or unexpected color, without warning everyone. It will let you play with a fun new look, and entertain you while you watch the expression on everyone’s faces when you walk into the room.

6. Enjoy a $400 (or more!) dinner at one of the world’s best restaurants. Food may never taste the same again, but what’s life if you can’t splurge every once in a while? Can’t choose just one? Put your favorites into a hat and pick at random.

7. Solve a Rubik’s cube, unassisted. It could take you a while, but the satisfaction you will feel when you’re finally done can’t be beat. Tip: The color in the center square is the color you’re aiming for on that side.

8. See Red Square in Moscow, Russia. The historical sites in this area are worth the trip alone. With St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Tomb, and more in the square, there are plenty of great sites to see.

9. Watch the AFI’s top 100 movies of all time (or pick a different top 100 list). Watch one movie a week, one movie a month – binge watch them. Just make sure you watch them. There is a reason they’re the best movies of all time.

10. Serenade someone. Your spouse, your sibling, your child, your parent, your best friend – whoever it is, the experience will create a fun memory for the both of you. Choose a birthday or another occasion to make it even more special.

11. Stand under the Hollywood sign. Since you can’t actually go to sit on the sign, get a photo under it. Make it fun by posing to appear as though you’re holding the sign up yourself.

12. Attend the Super Bowl. It will always be a crapshoot as to where it will be, who will be playing, and who will be the halftime entertainment, but the experience will be unforgettable

13. See the Aurora Borealis, aka the Northern Lights. Most often seen in March and April, and again in September and October, the colors in the natural sky are unlike anything else you’ll ever experience. Caused by atmospheric gases and solar winds at the magnetic poles, you won’t find it anywhere else.

14. Develop or learn a signature dish and become known for it. Choose your favorite recipe, and put your own spin on it. Take a cooking class and learn how to perfect it.

15. Finish a jigsaw puzzle. Bonus points for 1,000 pieces or more. Make it a family affair. Choose a beautiful scene – then preserve the memory with puzzle glue and a frame. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment and get a new piece of decor for your home.

 

16. Crash a wedding. Look through the local paper’s wedding announcements to find a random wedding nearby. Rent a tux or dress up, and walk in like you own the place. Have fun with it!

 

17. Float in the Dead Sea. Float freely in the salty waters, and relax. Beware of any cuts you may have, and try not to shave a few days before you make the trip, and you’ll have a better experience.

18. Learn a killer card trick. There are plenty of options available on YouTube, like the Floating Match on a Card, Show Biz Card, or the Card Trick without Cards. There are also DVDs you can buy online, too.

19. Forget the running of the bulls – throw tomatoes during La Tomatina in Spain, instead. The World’s Largest Food Fight is held on the last Wednesday of August every year, and involves throwing over 100 metric tons of tomatoes into the streets. It’s messy, but fun.

20. Drive a snow mobile. Who wouldn’t want to? Doesn’t it look like so much fun? Why walk in the snow when you could zoom along on the snowmobile? A cold climate is never too far away.

21. Take a zip line in Costa Rica. You will never be able to get quite the same view of the tropical rainforests from any other angle. It’s a great option for the adrenaline or the nature junkie.

22. Go to the Olympics. Summer, Winter, it doesn’t matter. Just pick one and go for the experience. Plan the trip in advance, so you can see as much of the host city as possible.

23. Go hang gliding over the Rio de Janeiro Harbor. One of the most beautiful places in the world, hang gliding brings you close to nature in a way nothing else can. It’s beautiful year-round.

24. Climb one of the world’s summits, the highest mountain on each continent. Though it will take lots of planning and training, what could be better than the view from the top of the world’s summits?

25. Find a cause and raise a significant amount of money toward it. What cause is closest to your heart? Connect with a fundraising company, host a bake sale, participate in a charity walk/run/triathlon, and raise as much money as possible.

26. Learn your family history. Understanding where you come from can do a great deal in helping you learn who are you. Pass your research down and keep it going.

27. Bungee jump the Royal Gorge in Colorado. Bungee jump off of the world’s tallest suspension bridge – 956 feet above the Arkansas River. Plus, when you visit, you’ll be at one of the places on the National Register of Historic Places.

28. Pose for a sexy calendar (for charity, of course). Choose an outift that makes you feel sexy, and offer to pose in a sexy calendar. You’ll be doing something for a good cause, and push yourself outside your comfort zone.

29. Ride the Singapore Flyer, the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. A whopping 541 feet from the ground, you can see for miles once you arrive at the top. Enjoy a sky dining experience while there, too.

30. Go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Explore one of the country’s best outdoor festivals and parades in the heart of New Orleans. There are family-friendly activities during the day.

31. Watch a total solar or lunar eclipse (or both!). Pay attention to the Farmer’s Almanac to find out when the next eclipses will take place. Watch safely, with the appropriate eye protection.

32. Learn to juggle. It doesn’t take a lot of money – just watch a few videos on YouTube. Start with two items, and work your way up as you feel comfortable. Practice makes perfect.

33. Master one terrifying fear. What’s one thing that scares you? Enlist the help of friends and family to help you conquer it.

34. Play golf at St. Andrews in Scotland. One of Europe’s greatest historical centers, and home to amazing golf courses, this is must-see for any golfer. Many consider it the “world’s home for golf” and once you see it, you’ll know why.

35. Milk a cow. Technology spoils us, so what better way to get in touch with our past by visiting a farm and getting milk straight from the source?

36. Ride in a hot air balloon. Check your local area for hot air balloon rides. It’s a great view and gives you a new way to appreciate your surroundings. Most rides allow to depart throughout the day so you can capture sunrise or sunset.

37. Climb the Statue of Liberty. One of the most beautiful national monuments in the country, climbing the Statue of Liberty is the equivalent of walking all 20 stories of a traditional building, but there are breathtaking views that make the trek worth it.

38. Visit Machu Picchu. Explore Inca history and go inside ruins. Travel is best during April-October. If you want to avoid most tourists, don’t travel from June-August

39. Listen to an old war veteran tell his or her stories. If you don’t have a war veteran in your social circle, visit the local VA hospital and volunteer. Spending the day with the vets not only enhances your knowledge, but provides much needed companionship for them.

40. Take a trip in a gondola in Venice. If you’re planning a trip to Italy, make sure to schedule a ride in a gondola. This special type of boat is unlike any you’d see elsewhere in the world.

41. Ride an elephant. There are plenty of places to ride an elephant if you visit Thailand, but if you choose to do this, follow all safety recommendations and guidelines. Train for the ride.

42. Get on the big screen – be in a movie. Pay attention to local casting calls – or plan a trip to L.A. to be an extra. You may only get two seconds of fame, but at least you’ll be able to say you were in a movie!

43. Make one huge, wild bet in roulette. Visit your local casino, or take a trip to Vegas. No matter what happens, be happy with the result. If you win, go have some fun. If you don’t, enjoy the experience for what it was.

44. Visit the Great Pyramid of Giza. The biggest and oldest of three major pyramids of Giza, you won’t see anything like it anywhere else in the world. Make it one of the many things you see in Egypt – or in Africa in general.

45. Master a signature cocktail (and a few other cocktails while you’re at it). Take your favorite flavors, and create your own cocktail (or mocktail). Have friends taste it and adjust it until it’s perfect.

46. View Paris from atop the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is one of the most iconic parts of Paris, and draws lots of visitors every year. The view of the city from that location is amazing.

47. Learn CPR. Classes are available through your local American Red Cross, as well as a number of other outlets. You never know when you may need to save a life! Recertify every so often to keep your skills sharp.

48. Drink an astonishingly expensive bottle of wine. Buy an entire bottle of one of the most expensive wines on the menu at your favorite restaurant. Don’t wait for a special occasion. Drink it just to drink it

49. Join a flash mob. Search online to find one, or start one of your own. Pick your favorite song, and make sure there’s plenty of room for everyone to dance. Keep it secret until the big day!

 

50. Eat one delicacy that sounds disgusting. Whether it’s escargot (snails) or something else entirely, give it a shot. You never know if you like something until you try it. Tastes change often throughout life.

51. Give or earn a punch or slap in the face. It is an experience we don’t necessarily want to have to go through, but somehow, you haven’t really experienced life until you punch someone or get punched.

 

52. Go to a drive-in theater (quick, before they become extinct!). Though they are certainly not as popular as they once were, a few drive-in theatres do still exist. Find one, and get to a movie there as soon as possible.

53. Fly first-class with Emirates Airlines. You’ll get a private cabin, with a first-class dining experience while on your flight. You’ll never fly like this on any other trip. There is even an on-board shower spa.

54. See the Roman Colosseum. The most famous attraction in Rome attracts more than five million visitors every year. Catch it whenever you can – it’s open every day except Christmas and New Year’s Day.

55. Have your portrait painted. Commission an artist to paint your portrait. It’s the only reason we have photos of some of our earliest historical figures – and would be a great keepsake to pass through the family.

56. Go whale-watching. Whales are some of the largest, yet most peaceful creatures on the planet. There are plenty of places to book a whale watching excursion, so check it out next time you’re planning a beach vacation.

57. Hold a tarantula. These scary looking spiders are not going to hurt you unless they feel threatened. If you are afraid of spiders, this is a great way to conquer that fear.

58. Drive a motorcycle. You can take lessons to prepare for your motorcycle license, should you decide to continue with the hobby. If you can ride a bike and drive a car, driving a motorcycle will not be hard for you.

59. Quit that one thing you don’t think you can quit. Whether it is caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, or something else entirely, challenge yourself to quit a bad habit. You’re capable of more than you think!

 

60. Ride in a helicopter. The smaller plane may scare you, but it will provide a private experience with amazing views. Plus, you likely won’t have to travel too far from home to do it.

61. Walk the Great Wall of China. You cannot walk the entire structure since it is 10,000 miles long, but there are parts of it maintained for the sole purpose of allowing tourists this experience. Some parts are not safe for walking.

62. Do a 3-day fast. *Please consult your doctor first. Once your doctor’s okay with it, try fasting to experience life from a different point of view. It is advised to not engage in strenuous activity during the fast, as your body won’t have the calorie stores to expend the energy.

63. Take the Polar Bear Plunge. Plunges are held throughout the year across the globe, so you can find the one that works best for you. You’ll agree to take a dip in frigid waters – bringing a whole new appreciation for a hot shower.

64. Tour the White House. Get a first hand look at the history of the United States government directly from the White House. Tours are conducted during certain hours only, so check ahead.

68. Learn to sail. Sailing is a wonderful thing to know – and could help you learn to conquer any fears of water. Sailing lessons are available throughout the country, so check your local area to see the closest options.

69. Fire a gun (safely, of course). Visit a local shooting range, and take a couple shooting lessons. It is always good to know how to shoot a gun, even if you do not own one yourself.

70. Hike the Appalachian Trail. The Appalachian Trail runs from Maine down to Georgia. While it would take a long time to hike the trail from start to finish, even hiking a small portion of it is better than missing out on this experience.

71. Spend St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin. St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish holiday, so what better way to spend it than in the capital of Ireland? With a huge St. Patrick’s Day parade and other festivities, no other celebrations can top it.

77. Check out the sand sculptures at Texas SandFest. Located in Port Aransas Texas, sand sculpture competition takes place in April every year. You’ll see much more than your typical sand castle here. Some of the entries are so intricate, you’ll wonder how such a thing was ever created with sand.

78. Take an African safari. The African jungles are unlike any other part of the world. Go exploring through nature, with the help of a trained guide, for an experience unlike any other. Plan several days for your trip to provide ample time.

87. Go on a sleigh ride. Sleigh rides aren’t common anymore, but there are several places throughout the country where you can do such a thing. Horse-drawn sleighs will take you on a leisurely ride through the area. Make it romantic and bring your partner.

94. Tuck a blank envelope containing $100 in cash into the mailbox of a family you know to be struggling. This is a wonderful way to give back anonymously, but be careful as you never know when someone else could get the envelope. Make sure the family checks their mail on a regular basis.

99. Go skinny-dipping. Even if it is in your backyard pool, take a nice dip in the nude, alone or with your partner. Bonus points for choosing a location not on your property.

100. Get in touch with teachers or role models from your past. Tell them just how much their positive influence meant to you. We all have that one teacher we remember years after graduation.

What is your dream job? Find out about what they really want to do with their life.  This is a great question to learn about their hopes, dreams, and goals.  Ask what they are doing to help make those things come true and why they want to do those things.
